Dozens Injured during Israeli Raid in Nablus

tomb of Prophet Joseph

Several Palestinians were wounded by gunfire, and numerous others suffered from tear gas inhalation when Israeli forces facilitated the entry of settlers to the tomb of Prophet Joseph (AS), east of Nablus, early Wednesday morning.

Local sources told al-Araby al-Jadeed that Israeli troops occupied residential areas surrounding the tomb, claiming to provide "protection" for the settlers who intended to pray at the site. Snipers positioned on nearby rooftops opened fire with live ammunition at local protesters, who erected barricades.

The tomb of Prophet Joseph (AS) holds significance for Muslims, Christians, Samaritans, and Jews and has frequently witnessed unauthorized incursions by Israeli settlers seeking to pray there.
